|I have to agree with prob, I bought this camera for my wife to replace a Fuji Finepix S5000. Honestly, I think "prob" is being overly critical. I too bought the S51 on Black Friday.|

Step 2 Frame a Picture
Ready the camera.
Hold the camera steadily in both hands, keeping your fingers and other objects away from the lens, flash, and self-timer lamp.
Frame the picture.
Position the main subject near the center of the monitor.
Using the Zoom
Use the zoom buttons to activate optical zoom. Press t (j) to zoom out, increasing the area visible in the frame, or v (k) to zoom in so that the subject fills a larger area of the frame.
Zoom out Zoom in
When the camera is zoomed in to the maximum magnification (3), holding down v (k) triggers digital zoom. The subject is magnified up to 4, for a total magnification of 12. A monitor indicator shows the current zoom ratio.
Zoom indicator displayed when the zoom buttons are pressed.
Optical zoom (up to 3)
Zoom indicator turns yellow when digital zoom is in effect.
Unlike optical zoom, data from the cameras image sensor are processed digitally with digital zoom. Details visible at maximum optical zoom are simply enlarged, producing a slightly grainy image.
High-sensitivity Shooting Mode
In high-sensitivity shooting mode (c 33), sensitivity is increased to reduce blurring caused by camera shake or subject movement under low lighting.
Step 3 Focus and Shoot
Press the shutter-release button halfway.
By default, the camera automatically focuses on the subject in the center focus area. When the subject is in focus, the focus area and focus indicator (p) glow green and exposure is set. When the camera is unable to focus, the focus area and focus indicator blink red. Change the composition and try again. When digital zoom is in effect, the focus area is not displayed and focus is acquired on the subject in the center of the monitor.
Press the shutter-release button the rest of the way down.
The picture will be recorded to the memory card or internal memory.
The camera features a two-stage shutter-release button. To set focus and exposure, press the shutter-release button halfway, stopping when you feel resistance. Focus and exposure lock while the shutter-release button is held in this position. To release the shutter and take a picture, press the shutter-release button the rest of the way down. Do not use force when pressing the shutter-release button, as this may result in camera shake and blurred pictures.
Focus and shoot.
The macro mode applied in L (auto) mode or highsensitivity shooting mode is stored in the cameras memory even after the camera is turned off.
In macro mode, the camera focuses continuously, even when the shutter-release button is not pressed halfway to lock focus.
Exposure compensation is used to alter exposure from the value suggested by the camera to make pictures brighter or darker.
Press the rotary multi selector I (exposure compensation).
Use the rotary multi selector to adjust exposure.
When the picture is too dark: adjust the exposure compensation to + side. When the picture is too bright: adjust the exposure compensation to - side. Exposure compensation can be set to values between -2.0 and +2.0 EV.
The I icon is displayed in the monitor. The monitor will return to the normal display for the current mode if the setting is not applied by pressing d within a few seconds. The exposure compensation applied in L mode or high-sensitivity shooting mode is stored in the cameras memory even after the camera is turned off.
Shooting Suited for the Scene - High-sensitivity Shooting Mode, Scene Mode
In high-sensitivity shooting mode, sensitivity is increased with shooting under low lighting to reduce blurring caused by camera shake or subject movement, allowing you to capture the atmosphere of the scene. ISO sensitivity will be automatically increased to a maximum of 1600 depending upon the brightness of the subject.
Enter high-sensitivity shooting mode by pressing C in shooting mode, selecting K (use the rotary multi selector), and then pressing d. Frame the subject and take the picture.
Notes on High-sensitivity Shooting Mode
This mode reduces effects of camera shake even for shooting under low lighting; however, when shooting without the flash, use of a tripod is recommended. Turn vibration reduction (c 111) off when using a tripod. Pictures taken in this mode may become somewhat grainy. Focus may not be precisely fixed in extremely dark places.
In high-sensitivity shooting mode, pressing m displays the high-sensitivity menu. The items available from this menu are the same as those available in the L (auto) mode shooting menu (c 86), except that [ISO sensitivity] is not available in the high-sensitivity menu. Just as with L (auto) mode, the flash mode, self-timer, macro mode, and exposure compensation are available.
The camera offers a choice of 15 scene options. Camera settings are automatically optimized for the selected subject type.
B Portrait E Landscape P Sports D Night portrait C Party/indoor H Beach/snow I Sunset J Dusk/dawn G Night landscape M Close up N Museum K Fireworks show O Copy L Backlight F Panorama assist
Enter scene mode by pressing C in shooting mode, selecting n (use the rotary multi selector), and then pressing d.
